S Club fans furious after just one member turns up to concert

S Club fans furious after just one member turns up to concert

Fans were not happy about the small turnout

Fans couldn't wait to reunite with the iconic seven members of S Club 7 after they announced their nationwide tour.

However, many were beyond disappointed when just one member ended up making an appearance to the long-anticipated sold-out gig.

Talk about a bad turn out.

The iconic British pop group was formed by former Spice Girls manager Simon Fuller way back in 1998.

The band went on to become one of the UK’s biggest pop bands in the late 1990s and early 2000s with hit No.1 tracks like 'Don’t Stop Movin', 'Bring It All Back' and - everyone's favourite - 'S Club Party'.

After eight long years since the pop group parted ways, fans were overjoyed upon knowing they could finally reunite for S Club 7's 25th anniversary tour across the UK and Ireland.

The original seven members; Tina Barrett, Paul Cattermole, Jon Lee, Bradley McIntosh, Jo O'Meara, Hannah Spearritt and Rachel Stevens all agreed to join forces to take fans on a nostalgia-inducing trip back into the 2000s.

Or at least they said they would.

Fans have been sent into a total frenzy after just one S Club original showed up to perform at a small gig in the Isle of Wight recently.

Two of the seven members, Tina Barrett, 46, and Bradley McIntosh, 41, were confirmed to perform at a 150-capacity venue in Newport for just £23 a ticket.

The event was aptly titled 'Flashback Fridays' and, unsurprisingly, the tickets sold out in a matter of seconds.

With fans eager for a blast from the past, many were left high and dry when Tina was nowhere to be seen - leaving Bradley all alone to perform solo.

The news has sent fans into a total spiral on Twitter, with one outraged fan posting: "What a disappointing night. I felt so bad for Bradley."

"Absolutely raging," tweeted another, "Paid good money to see two members of S Club 7 and only one showed up."

A third called the whole ordeal an absolute 'let down'.

They added: "Turned up to find out they can't perform as S Club as they've signed a contract and no Tina. Happy to take everyone's money though."

A spokesperson from the venue, Wyld, told the Daily Star: "Sadly, this situation was out of our hands, and when we booked the show there was no speculation or confirmation of an S Club 7 reunion, for which contractual obligations meant they weren’t able to perform the show we had booked and sold tickets to."

"What a disappointing night."

The spokesperson also added that the unhappy customers would be entitled to a '50 per cent refund' for the inconvenience.

While the small gig was clearly a disappointment, fans can still look forward to the official reunion tour starting this October.

The group released a statement sharing their excitement: "After eight years it feels amazing to announce that we’re reuniting and performing together again."

They added: "We can’t even believe it’s been so long. Music and friendship have always been at the core of everything that we’ve ever done.

"We hope everyone can join us for one big party."
